Gil Evans playing his arrangement in 1959.    The credits are the list of everyone who played on the album, I can't track down a list specific to this recording.

Jazz evolved, rock didn't.

My brother turned me on to WBGO, I suspect it will be my first choice in web-radio listening.   They played the Gil Evans version this morning.
